    since millie's been on 3 meals a day she takes less milk. iv never known exactly how much milk she takes each day coz im breast feeding. but i hav just started the occasional bottle of formula and when she has that its usually between 75 and 100mls (tho on new years day she was polishing off 125ml feeds)
    she'll hav 4 "long" BFs (10-15 minute ones) and 2 "mini" ones (2-5 minutes) in 24 hours - is this enough or am i going too fast with the solids? (btw if i do giv formula it will be INSTEAD of one of the "long" BFs not as well as)

    I'm glad the HV has put your mind at ease trixipaws, great to hear Millie's doing so well :hug: :hug: :hug: I don't BF anymore now :( but fluid oz wise, Isaac has roughly 25oz in a 24hr period, plus 2jars of food and finger foods.
